"Crazy man" sums this up pretty well. Doesn't bring comfort to the delivery man or his family. Hope the delivery man does well. My grandpa delivered papers back in the day & we never worried about his safety on his early Sunday morning treks. That was a different era, though.

No actually there is no woman involved. Mr. E. was just delivering papers when they old guy shot him. They don't even know each other. The old guy goes to the mental health clinic, and we don't think he took his meds. He was in the restaurant the night before talking crazy. The reason he was at the store was to get back at the cop he had an argument with the day before. And, the funny thing is, it's the same cop who made the comment in this article. Mr. E. was really just in the wrong place at the wrong time. He is really a nice man who doesn't bother anybody and goes out of his way to help everybody. And, he is a strong man because he actually drove himself back home after being shot, and his wife called 911. So please don't make assumptions, it's really not neccessary. Just keep him in your prayers. He had to undergo surgery because his lung got punctured. Have a nice day.

Hope he fries nice and crispy. That poor old man was probably just trying to suppliment his social security. There is absolutely no justification for not frying this perp.

Blame it on the glasses, he did not mean to do it. Someone needs to shoot his crazy butt.

My uncle is a kind and loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, neighbor, church leader, and friend to many. It is sad when we have to justify my uncle when we should be concerned about the man that committed this horrible crime. My uncle's faith in God will sustain him during this time. I pray that each of you will keep my uncle and his family in your prayers.

He opened fire with a sawed off shot gun?!! My Lord, what happened to the days when elderly people sat on the front porch and waved as the traffic went by.? You can look at his picture and tell he's not all there.

the guy is a danger to him self and evidently others. you are idiots for feeling sorry for him. he needs to be locked in a mental asylum and never let out. if he is let out he might kill someone next time. stupid nigglings
